I decided to use Basic Gray cardstock as my base and then added a layer of Crushed Curry before adding the stamped Whisper White layer. I stamped the unicycle slightly crookedly since I intended to have my frog counterbalance by standing on the seat on one leg. Yes, this is a very daring frog! I used the framelit die to cut out the frog image and then coloured it and attached it using Dimensionals for a 3-D look. Above the frog, I added two mosquitoes (flies?) which I had stamped and cut out using the framelit die.
I wasn't entirely certain when I began the card, whether I would have the unicycle balanced on a lilypad or on a tightrope. In the end I chose the tightrope, to add to his daring feat. I think the green retired thick baker's twine is perfect, don't you?
Since the front of my birthday card is relatively simple, I decided to add a little special something to the inside. what could be better than a little pop-up scene? For that I combined a number of products including the So Hoppy Together bundle.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
